Golubovic, Milan V. Lazarevic, Konstansa K. LazarevicAbstractBackgroundVenous leg ulcers (VLUs) are a major health problem because of their high prevalence and associated high cost of care. Despite the widespread use of compression, treatment recurrence rates remain high. Numerous studies have suggested that regular use of compression stockings reduces VLU recurrences. However, there are limited data concerning how long compression ho...

Publication date: October 2018Source: Journal of Functional Foods, Volume 49Author(s): Cheng Xu, Rui Zhang, Zhiyou WenAbstractSea cucumbers are a group of economically important invertebrate marine animals that have been widely used as tonic foods in Asia countries. Various bioactive compounds in sea cucumbers including peptides, triterpene glycosides, polysaccharides, phenols, and lipids have been reported. These compounds demonstrate a myriad of salubrious biological functions such as anti-oxidant, anticancer, anti-inflammation, anti-thrombus, anti-microbes, anti-diabetes, anti-obesity, and learning and memory improvemen...

Authors: Lu J, Sheng M, Yao P, Ran C, Liu H, Chen L, Liu R, Li B Abstract Objective: To investigate the effect of high concentration of glucose on reactive oxygen species (ROS) production in rabbit corneal epithelial cells (RECEs) and explore whether the increased ROS initiates the apoptosis process of RECEs through oxidative stress and endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress pathway. Methods: RECEs were treated by different concentrations of glucose for a while, and then the production of ROS was detected by flow cytometry. The expressions of PERK, p-PERK, Akt, p-Akt, and CHOP were determined by western blot, and th...

Authors: He F, Zhao Z, Liu Y, Lu L, Fu Y Abstract Purpose: To investigate the impact of disease duration on the ocular surface during the course of type 2 diabetes mellitus compared with nondiabetic controls. Methods: One hundred twenty diabetic patients were divided into three groups according to disease duration: less than 5 years, 5-10 years, and over 10 years. All eyes were imaged using a corneal topographer (Oculus Keratograph 5M). Tear film measurements and meibography were also recorded. Meibomian gland changes were scored from 0 to 6 (meiboscore). Results: The noninvasive breakup time first (NIKBUT-...

CONCLUSIONS: Alpha-lipoic acid and spinal cord stimulation were effective for pain; studies were short-term with quality deficits. Spinal cord stimulation had serious adverse events. Further research should address long-term outcomes and other non-pharmacologic treatments. PMID: 30114983 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionsBecause of the chronic nature ofPhialophora verrucosa, a patient ’s first visit may occur many years after trauma, and sometimes clinical presentation might not appear to indicate fungal infection. Therefore, a high index of suspicion is needed in this situation. Voriconazole showed good results in our case. Instead of using a more invasive keratoplasty, we use d corneal cross-linking to strengthen the corneal biomechanics. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case showing the benefit of corneal cross-linking to improve corneal biomechanics in resolvedPhialophora verrucosa keratitis.

uuml;cel Ümide Demir Özkay Atomoxetine is a selective noradrenaline reuptake inhibitor drug. Based on the knowledge that agents increasing monoamine levels in the central nervous system have therapeutic potential for neuropathic pain, it is planned to investigate the possible efficacy of atomoxetine on diabetes-induced hyperalgesia, in this study. Randall-Selitto (mechanical noxious stimuli) and Hargreaves (thermal noxious stimuli) tests were used to evaluate nociceptive perception of rats. Obtained data indicated that streptozotocin-induced diabetes causes significant decreases in the paw withdrawal thresh...

CONCLUSIONS: Based on clinical trial data, the present analysis suggests that IDegLira is associated with improved clinical outcomes and cost savings compared with treatment with insulin glargine U100 plus insulin aspart for patients with type 2 diabetes not achieving glycemic control on basal insulin in the US. Therefore, IDegLira is likely to be considered dominant (cost saving and more effective) and consequently highly cost-effective in the US setting. PMID: 30114954 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
